On the menu, a visit of the Château, the Carriage museum and the gardens in a magic and welcoming atmosphere made of thousands of light garlands and giant trees. As soon as we arrive, the magic works with an alley of fir trees outside the Château, like a red carpet of greenery...

This year, toys of yesteryear will be givent pride of place at the Château. The Salon des Muses takes us to a Christmas morning set with snow-covered trees surrounded by gifts ready to be unpacked. 

The Cabinet de Jeux offers us to discover games from the 17th century while in the Antichambre, we find trees filled with teddy bears from Histoires d'Ours.

In the library, we're diving into a magic decor like in a music box mixing ballerinas and animated orchestra. As for the King's Chamber, it houses the traditional Christmas nativity scene.

If the weather is mild enough, you can enjoy a walk in the garden thought up by Le Nôtre, it’s covered in a multitude of light garlands lighting up at nightfall and making box trees and lawns sparkle while a 5-m squirrel rules over the gardens à la française: for a unique moment, horse-drawn-carriage rides for an additional cost.

And to keep a souvenir of this day: a surprise PAPO gift is givent to all children from 3 to 12 years old. The oldest can win one of the 2 cuddle rabbits given away every day by Doudou & Compagnie.

Moreover, a slice of gingerbread expects kids over 6 at the end of this enchanting ride.

And from January 2 to 6, 2019, Vaux-le-Vicomte invites visitors to celebrate the Mages. All children can enjoy a slice of the brioche king crown cake by Pasquier for free and have a chance to become the king or the queen if they find the lucky charm.
